Port Authority sues more over tolls

    It may be a foggy commute this morning, but that doesn’t get you off the hook:

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey continues to take an aggressive stance against toll cheats.

     

    The agency has filed another 14 lawsuits against what it calls its most egregious toll violators. That brings the total number of suits to 33 since February when the agency announced its “Wall of Shame” program.

    The Port Authority says 36 companies and individuals owe it more than $50,000 in tolls and fees.

    Port Authority police have also arrested 13 toll violators and issued 24 summonses.

    In a statement, executive director Pat Foye says the Port Authority will use every resource necessary to collect the money.
